My Favorite SURPRISE Baby Daddy Trope Books – 15 Books

Surprise Baby Daddy Trope

Surprise baby daddy romance novels where the heroine keeps the pregnancy a secret and the hero finds out years later. This is not only a surprise baby daddy trope but also a second chance trope where they hero and heroine rekindle their relationship.

I love a second chance book especially where the hero has to grovel to get the heroine back. I also love cute kids involved as well.
